TAPALUPÉ, TEQUILO - Welcome to the shiny new sports wire for Tequilo's all new proto-commercialised national league, Liga-TQ, brought to you by the Unión de Pitxi Tequilo - the UPT, or the football association to the rest of us.

A word from the president of the UPT, the most revered Señor Lepe (about whom you may read further down in this newswire):

The UPT welcomes one and all to the publication of this, the Tequiloan national sports wire for the national sport, pitxi - or 'football', as you might know it, and even 'Soccer' if you live over the horizon of our northern borders. Whilst we hope you enjoy the information provided herein, will you kindly note the following;

Please do not post in this thread unless by invitation - it is a domestic newswire for Tequilo only.

Thank you.


For more information please email spamdelete@liga.teq [OOC:or TG Tequilo] Collaborative works always negotiable, but you are also welcome to come up with your own ideas for your sports thread and positively invited not to copypaste from here, that would be lazy and rude.

The modernisation - and internationalisation - of football in Tequilo has been led by football legend (in Tequilo) Señor Lepe, the great Oriente striker of yore, and the sitting president of the Unión de Pitxi Tequilo. He was the driving force behind the foundation of Liga-TQ and perhaps the only person who could reconcile clubs, fans and commercial interests to form a national league over and above the traditional state leagues. Lepe has recruited another football legend to the role of Commissioner, the chief executive officer of the new league, in famously eccentric former striker at Fábrica, Pablo Invocador, who will hold the post for three seasons before an election takes place to re-appoint him or find a replacement.

Here we present short bios of the two key gentlemen, copied with kind permission from GOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL-a!!! Daily, your first and best resource for football updates, daily.


The President
Lepe

Image
Attendees of the recent lecture at the Museo de Pitxi will recall that one of the greatest Tequiloan pitxileros, Naximien Tó Arante Edixon, most commonly Lepe, played over six hundred games for Las Guías Oriente in Maranco State with a feather in his jockstrap, or so he alleged. He claimed the Resplendent Jackdaw often guided his shots into the goal. Legend has it that he only ever used the same feather, and that after around 400 games or so, it was so completely worn away apart from the hard keratin rachis or spine that he had to transfer it to a sock. It is notable that he scored 30% less effectively in his later years at Oriente, and Lepe has repeatedly expressed regret that he did not manage to pluck a stock of feathers from the Resplendent Jackdaw that he encountered during a vigilia desierto - a pilgrimage he made into the great Jardínfierno desert as a teenager with the express purpose of improving his finishing technique. Regardless of his own perceived failures and his moderate decline in goalscoring - hardly a crisis, with 522 goals for Oriente in 646 appearances making him the highest goalscorer in Tequilo domestic football history - Lepe went down as probably the greatest player of all time in the country, frequently polling at #1 in fan surveys though there are few fans alive today who are old enough to have seen him play, let alone recall the quality of his performances. Lepe is widely celebrated in his own lifetime, becoming a media star and a graceful, eloquent spokesperson for the development of pitxi; even becoming the UPT - the Tequiloan FA - President for the last eight years.


The Commissioner
Pablo Invocador

Image
If anyone invokes the spirits of pitxi, the patron wights, more successfully than Pablo Invocador, then I am yet to hear of it. Perhaps one day this emerging Cult of Teoxi Cóndor will produce the footballer more successful than Râmón Tüjânger, more skilled than Lepe, and more uncanny than the cruyff-spirit Oooóooos - but until that day comes, Señor Invocador, pretty decent footballer in his day for mighty Fábrica Tapalupé, wins the prize of most haunted pitxilero. In a country where shambolic religious symbolism and ritual is bound up with everyday life, including football, such a character, un chamán, will rise to the top of everyone’s consciousness - but, when the referee blew time on his career, and he was no longer in the public eye, whatever became of the man who could magic a goal out of nothing, and put a defender on the floor with just a secret word muttered under his breath? With the most appearances (605) and the most goals (419) for Fábrica during a 20+ year career, Pablo Invocador was easily become eternal legend for The Spanners from the day he retired - and the club even named their old Santa Léa stadium after him. His name lives on, as does the memory of his jinxes on the pitch, and that one time especially goes down in folklore when he made Argón keeper Abel Blázquez perform a headstand when facing him for a penalty kick - and was sent off for unsportsmanlike conduct. But where is he now? Unsurprisingly, Pablo joined the House of Shambles - the administrative body that presides over belief and disbelief in the Shambolic Tradition - where he is nominally an administrative clerk for the atheist story-telling cult, but where, secretly, we all believe, he conjures spirits for amusement and good prospects. With the foundation of the new Liga-TQ, he was brought out of pitxi retirement to become commissioner for the league, based no doubt on his boundless energy and limitless good fortune.

Formed as part of Tequilo's modernisation process, the all-new national Liga-TQ, for the first time in over 120 years of football in Tequilo, provides a step beyond the individual state championships in an effort to determine a national champion for the country, and to easily nominate, on merit, entrants to the IFCF Champions League, Challenger's Cup, Liga-B Champions Trophy, Cup Winners Cup and the FFI tournaments.

Liga-TQ follows the traditional state championships: six states, each with around fifty teams competing in three tiers. The championships of Antivador, Chazapa, Guastenango, Maranco, Ocotapa and Puezan have been running for more than 120 years, having their own rivalries, and declaring their own champions. Although the equally ancient and massive Copa Tequilo has been running a national competition with a national winner for all that time, there has never before been an official Tequiloan national champion achived through a league system. Each state championship runs a promotion and relegation system with playoffs through the tiers, which are referred to as 1-Sección, 2-Sección and 3-Sección respectively; the top 1-Sección being a professional tier, down to the 3-Sección being largely semi-pro. Below that are local amateur tiers, collectively 4-Sección, and there is no usual promotion/relegation between 3- and 4-Seccións.

Liga-TQ will offer an opportunity for the best teams from each state to come together to compete in a short form league to decide a national champion. Liga-TQ2 offers a similar opportunity for 2-Sección winners, while Liga-J offers an elite academy league covering the whole country, initially of one tier which will gradually be extended to two and three divisions, offering places for up to 42 academies in total once fully operational.

A quick note on the inauguration of Liga-TQ. Naturally, nothing is simple in Tequilo. A modern unified nation comprising six former sovereign states and three indigene kingdoms, each with a proud history and unique identity, much of life remains connected to the culture and infrastructure of those individual states - and the same is true of pitxi - the Tequiloan word for football. After 120+ years of state championships, in which each state declared it's own winner, the clubs, fans and authorities were far too invested in state football to dismantle it. A unification league had never been tried before, and in order to preserve both the integrity and the status of the six championships, Liga-TQ sits as an extension to, rather than a replacement for, the state championships. Thus, at the end of the State Championships, teams qualify on merit for the 'closura' - the Liga-TQ.

Liga-TQ itself divides into three top flight sections, each one made up of six teams - the Primera for the six state champions; the Proxima for the six state runners-up, and the Pequena for the six third-placed teams of the state championships. Each division of six plays a double round robin totalling ten games within their group, to decide a final table of 18 in three sections. The winner of the Primera will thus be declared the national champion, while second, third and fourth in this division will be awarded births in the IFCF Challenger's Cup.

In order to confirm places for the Liga-B Champions Trophy, the winners of each state second tier - the 2-Sección - will also compete in an end of season competition, the Liga-TQ2 Eliminatorio, to decide the second tier national winner and the three births for the Trophy.

Got it? Then let's get on with it.

Wire Copa History

Postby Tequilo » Tue Jul 21, 2020 12:18 am

El Gran Gallo, The Grand Old Father [Lit: Cockerel; Collq: progenitor, father] of Tequiloan football and national knockout cup competition, the Copa Tequilo is one of the oldest competitions in the Costelloan diaspora, and possibly The Wide Enness Ocean: having surpassed 120 years of organised pitxi, the Copa is at least very old, by Yuman standards. In fact, the football clock of Tequilo ticks by the standard of the Copa - 'temporada-1' (season one) in the history of all Tequiloan football was the first Copa tournament enumerated in the history books, won by Polibio. Any games before this took place in 'La Prehistoria' according to the Tequiloa. The first season of the modern era, beginning with the inauguration of Liga-TQ, is in fact season 123 in Copa-time.

Not only is the Grand Old Father truly ancient, it is extremely difficult to win - with over 600 teams taking part over a two-season cycle, no one team has been truly dominant. The mighty CF Frantxizko-A, commonly CFFA or Los Oros, The Golds, have won the most titles - a meagre six in almost a century and a quarter of competition.

A two season cycle, you say?

It is true to say that though there is a final every year, the Copa is fairly unique in that it offers every single team registered with the UPT a chance to participate in the competition, no matter how small or large. In any given year, this is usually a compliment of 600-700 teams; far too many for a single-season tournament. Thus, a preliminary competition, La Copa Del Pueblo or commonly Copa Pueblo - The People's Cup - runs every season, providing a stepping stone to the Copa Tequilo the following season. Running strictly for the 4-Sección amateur tiers, the Copa Peublo does proceed all the way to a final and provides for an overall winner, but perhaps more importantly, the final sixteen teams of the Copa Peublo automatically qualify for the following season's Copa Tequilo. Beginning with an extra preliminary round to reduce the field from 16 to 10 from the Copa Peublo, the Copa Tequilo includes the lowest ranked 3-Sección semi-pro teams joining in the preliminary round; the majority of 3-Sección starting the first round proper; 2-Sección joining in the second round; and the top flight 1-Sección teams joining in the fourth round.

There are a further five rounds leading to the final, known as El Gallo Dorado, The Golden Cock, which is so enthusiastically anticipated and so widely followed in Tequilo that it falls on a national holiday all of its own. So difficult is it to win through then, that in the long history of the game, only three teams have successfully defended their title - SC Pedregal by winning in seasons 15 and 16; Acacoyagua in 106 and 107; and Resplendiente in seasons 118 and 119. Acacoyagua in fact came close to making it three in a row, reaching the 108 final before losing to Atlético Lipa. They remain the only team to reach three consectutive finals. Twelve teams have won a Copa and State Championship double in the same season, most recently Resplendiente in season 118; no team has achieved that honour more than once.

A future record to be made will be the first treble - never available until now - of State Championship, Liga-TQ and Copa Tequilo. Can it ever be done? As usual, Motozintla have announced they aim to do precisely that; and as usual, they probably won't.

The record final victory was Tequiloa's famous 13-0 victory over Estudiantes in season 91, whilst only Inter Raití have also hit double figures in a final, beating Erreal Tiresias 11-0 in the 64th de Oro. Uniquely, the second Copa Tequilo was awarded to Unuiĝinta without a final being played. In a political row of the time between different states, in the earliest days of the competition, Académico of Chazapa state and Raquette-22 of Antivador, bowing to the pressure of bigger clubs throughout the nation, refused to play their semi-final match, and when forced to, played out a ridiculous 0-0 draw with no shots on goal, no corners, and no goals scored in 44 penalty kicks in the shoot-out before the enraged referee called time on the game. With Unuiĝinta having won through the other semi against holders Polibio, the UPT decided to avoid any further fuss and awarded the title to The Reds. Famously then, the competition has one more winner than it does finals, and Unuiĝinta have one more title than they do final appearances.

Both Académico and Raquette-22 were banned from the competition for ten years, reduced to seven on appeal. Incredibly, on their return, Raquette went on to win the Copa in what was to be their only appearance in the final.

Modern Era Winners

The inauguration of Liga-TQ in season 123 is officially considered the beginning of the modern era, although 'modern' records usually reflect back to season 120, just to be tidy.

Not content with a new national league and a pathway to the international club competitions of the IFCF, as well as a new national team competing in the World Cup for the first time, the UPT also organised the first edition of a national youth league, Liga-J, in season 123 of Tequiloan pitxi - that is to say, at the start of the modern era in Liga-TQ's inaugural season. In the initial set-up, the academies of the 10-Nacional ('Big Ten') clubs were invited to compete, along with three state champions from season 122 who sat outside the Big Ten - Serpentina, Xicoa and Unuiĝinta. With an unbalanced 13 teams, one more team was invited to complete the first Liga-J division, based on the size and reputation of academies, and the place was awarded to Motozintla. Thus in the first season, a fourteen-team Under-20 Academies national league saw a 26-game schedule to decide the youth champion. The UPT includes plans to expand to thirty academy teams in the early days, competing in three tiers of 10. In the first expansion for the following season, season 124, the four bottom teams of the first year's Liga-J were relegated to the second tier, where they were joined by a further ten teams, with a final tier and an additional six teams being added in season 125. Provision is also made for a potential additional twelve teams in the future, creating a three-tier 14-14-14 structure.

Wire Directorio 10-Nacional

Postby Tequilo » Wed Jul 29, 2020 12:51 am

In the time before the foundation of the Liga-TQ and it's purpose to decide a national champion, all clubs competed in their own state championships, and but for the Copa Tequilo, pre-season friendlies and invitational tournaments, clubs rarely competed directly with other teams beyond state borders. Competitive matches between some of the biggest teams in the country might be once-in-a-lifetime affairs, and arguments to settle who the best teams were at any given time might rage for a decade or more because there were no easy ways to prove it. For the big teams, the only way to really compare would be to match trophy cabinets - who had won the most Copas? Who had won the most state championships? This latter measure gave rise to the 10-Nacional - an informal association of the 'Big Ten': those ten clubs across the country with the most state titles. Entry to the club is guaranteed only by winning, and whilst the clubs in it are often called the 'big ten', the membership naturally can, and has, changed over time; some truly big clubs, with money, resources, and wide support, are not always members - right now, for example, Motozintla would big-headedly but with fair cause claim to be one of the three or four biggest clubs in the country based on the size of support - but have not won enough titles to be present incumbents of the 10-Nacional. Likewise one might point to Inter and SC Raití - two huge clubs from one city - as well as Oriente, Atlético Lipa and the people's club, Cooperativa, as giants of the Tequiloan game who sit outside the 10-Nacional. But the door is open to them - if they can bag a few state titles.

No-one is quite sure what will become of the 10-Nacional members club once the new Liga-TQ has been going a while and is producing annual champions; perhaps it will become a redundancy. But for the time being, at least, it remains the easy way to identify the most successful, if not always the biggest, clubs in Tequilo.

ACACOYAGUA

Liga-TQ: Yet to qualify
State Championships: Guastenango State Champions 18 times; most recent season 120
Copa Tequila: Winners 3 times; most recent season 107

Stadium: Estadio Cuahtémoc, Huayna-Comitán.Capacity: 72,305

The Huayna Empire, one of the three great tribes of ancient Mesopletora, built the magnificent city state of Huayna-Comitán and while the alliance of Tequilo holds all people in equal regard and technically without geographic bias, the cloud forest city is one of the most spectacular ancient homes of the Índigo people, and even in modern times is a large majority Huayna people. That also means, quite unusually, that the two main pitxi clubs in the city are not informally divided - in terms of support and appeal - on racial lines as is the case in other major conurbations where there are large mixes of both heritages: here, both Índigo Huayna and it’s much larger and more successful rival, Acacoyagua, are widely supported by native communities as well as the minority Costelloa immigrant groups. Acaco, or Los Blancolirios, are one of the great names of pitxi - though unlike the likes of SC Pedregal, the ’77os, or CF Frantxizko-A, they are not greatly supported outside of their home state, as they have never been perceived as a glamour club in the eyes of the nation. And yet they have matched SC Pedregal for titles and continue to compete for trophies.

ARGÓN TACRANZA

Liga-TQ: Best finish - 17th; season 1 (o123)
State Championships: Ocotapa State Champions 17 times; most recent season 121
Copa Tequila: Winners - 1 time, season 30

Legend: Râmón Tüjânger (FFD)

Current Manager: Luis Tenorio
Team Captain: Máximo San Martín (MC)
Star Player: Kayara (ST)
Young Prospect: Masango Sukè (AM)

Argón might be considered one of the glamour sides in Tequilo; a strong tradition of flamboyant pitxi, a draw for the glitterati of national society, a fancy new stadium, and always a healthy sprinkling of the most exciting and extrovert players in all the state championships. Blessed it seems with eternal wealth thanks to their connection to the Ixtal farming industry - whether that is all above board and regular is open to scrutiny - the club have always had a big budget by Tequiloan standards and have never been afraid of more exotic and experimental signings. The Tamarindian influence is clear, including the team captain and regular hero in these parts, Máximo San Martín - and Argón are well underway with their Atlético Refugiados project, which on the one hand is an admirable lower league club to support under-pressure influx populations - previously Tamarindia during the Fall, and more recently Farfadillis as it descends into anarchy - and on the other hand is a good way to scout for new talent. Everyone remembers Râmón Tüjânger as one of Argón’s favourite foreigners, and he paved the way for modern Farves who, like Tamarindians and Ipañemos in these parts, are considered inherently better at the pitxi than the locals. Watch out for new fancy foreign heroes soon.

Star Player: Oueaiei Eld'end'rild (ST)
Young Prospect: Tomás de Raya (MR)

Antivador has more than it’s fair share of glamour clubs - but the most successful Antivadorio club isn’t one of them. An antidote to the glitz and glamour of football in general in the state, Atlás Ciuredor are the ‘spit and sawdust’ sleeves-rolled-up no-nonsense grafters (and other working class stereotypes) who get things done and have won more than their fare share of state titles. More even than perhaps two of the most well known Antivadorio clubs across the Wide Enness Ocean - your Real Gardaresso and Florentino wonderclubs. Do Atlás have a chip on their shoulder? Not a bit of it - they love being the unfancied and stoic workhorses that frequently upstage the fancy-pants neighbours.

CF FRANTXIZKO-A

Liga-TQ: Best finish - 13th; season 1 (o123)
State Championships: Puezan State Champions 21 times - second highest nationally; most recent season 108
Copa Tequila: Winners - 6 times, the most titles; including one double, most recent win in season 117

Stadium: Estadio Florentzio Mesperuza (El Mesperuza), IragartzeCapacity: 76,505
Nicknames: CFFA; Los Oros, The Golds
Colours: All gold strip with black trim
Alternate: Black shirts, white shorts, red socks

Team Captain: Xesus Vales (AMC)
Star Player: Garaitz Minha (DL)
Young Prospect: Alexandro Calvoecheaga (ST)

Only Pitxi-Pitxi 77 of Chazapa state come close to matching the dominance of Los Oros in domestic football, each of the two teams winning 21 state championships. But with six Copa Tequilo wins, four more than the '77os and two more than any other team, it is CF Frantxizko-A who hold the crown as most successful team of all time; in amongst those titles are a rare cup and state championship double, and the first four-in-a-row of state titles, with that record only ever having been matched once, by Cooperativa of Ocotapa state. The widest supported team in the country, they rightly claim to be both the biggest and the best - but it’s this attitude that also makes them a divisive team - while the ‘77os are just about everyone’s second team, The Golds certainly are not; you either love them or you hate them. In football-mad Puezan they have dominated a championship that otherwise still has some big and famous clubs, including Peru Urzagui, Urbo Ibaeta, Sporta Ibaeta, KKA Bixintxo and Unuiĝinta - but none have managed to come close to the huge status of CFFA.

FÁBRICA TAPAPULPÉ

Liga-TQ: Yet to qualify
State Championships: Ocotapa State Champions 18 times; most recent season 122
Copa Tequila: Winners - 4 times (joint second most successful) most recent season 100

Stadium: Estadio Pablo Invocador (El Volcán), Distrito Santa Léa, TapalupéCapacity: 53,523
Nicknames: The Spanners, Las Llaves, The Factory Team
Colours: Blue & white harlequin quartered shirt with red trim, white shorts & socks with blue trim.

Legend: Pablo Invocador

Current Manager: Axel Cortés
Team Captain: Bruno Rodríguez (DC)
Star Player: Ricardo Bailén (AMR)
Young Prospect: Tol Chicote (DC)

Though not the best supported in the capital city of Tapalupé - behind both Haïtiens and Galaxía - The Spanners are certainly the most successful, comfortably sitting in the nation’s top ten by state titles and a strong Copa Tequilo performer - indeed, overall in total silverware they sit equal second in the country with the much more celebrated Pitxi-Pitxi 77, both with 22 trophies in total, but some way distant of CF Frantxizki-A’s full haul of 27 trophies. Not recognised to the same extent as the ’77o and only the third best supported team in their home city, this is the club with a bit of a chip on it’s shoulder fighting for the same recognition as the other two giants. Even in Maranco state they sit second behind rivals Argón in most popularity poles, despite leading them by one title in the state championships. For the Spanners, it seems to be a constant battle for recognition, and the only thing they can do is win things… which they do, regularly.

FLORENTINO

Liga-TQ: Yet to qualify
State Championships: Antivador State Champions 15 times; most recent season 117
Copa Tequila: Winners - 3 times; most recent season 36

Alternate: Red & white halved shirts, white shorts, black socks
Rivals: Real Gardaresso (El Spectáculario), Humberto (El Cinematíco), Atlético Lipa (El Gran Kika), Atlás Ciuredor (El Brillantíno), Juventoyan (El Rangél)
Legend: Humberto Bustamante

Current Manager: Aueioeay W'ight-a
Team Captain: Dieguito Florentin (DR)
Star Player: Antton Machinena (DC)
Young Prospect: Alex Gallo (ST)

In the glamour stakes, there really is only one team in all Tequilo who do not stand in the sparkling shadow of Real Gardaresso, and that is their Antivadorio rivals, Florentino, the famous Violets. They may not have the wider appeal that Real have achieved but certainly a club with flair and attacking creativity at the heart of their playing philosophy over so many decades of success means Los Violetas are naturally associated with the more glamorous side of the game. Many of the greats of antiquity have played here in Florentin, including legendary fatty, footballer, circus strongman and cinema superstar Humberto Bustamante, El Lechero or ‘The Milkman’; Wightling World Cup winners Mardellion Hummingbird and Marriner Friend-Forsaken along with fellow countryman and progenitor of the famous Bonesea Jones’ dynasty - Asbo Jones; local legends here in these parts Hernando de la Nata, Gavriel Carrión and Sansón, and of course El Ladrillo - The Brick - colourful defender Gianfrancesco Lego, the first galloping fullback for whom the stadium is named.

Here is one of the superpowers of football in Tequilo, at the heart of one of the country's most extraordinary cities. Like Huayna-Comitán in Guastenango, Ixta-Comitán has been beautifully preserved as a great Indigo city state, although unlike it’s rival city, it is surrounded by a much less interesting and more heavily industrialised region; it’s borders are now more or less the end of traditional Ixta cultural identity. The city itself supports three top flight or 1-Sección clubs, with Jaguars and Serpentina both strong clubs in the state championship. But there is only one club in the state - and arguably the nation - that all others must merely follow, the mighty Pitxi-Pitxi 77. Formed nearly 150 years ago they are one of the oldest clubs in the country, and are the most favoured by the strong Ixta population throughout Chazapa and the nation. Rivalled only by Puezan states’ CF Frantzixko-A, they have the most state titles and are surely the widest supported - CFFA are popular of course, but also the team everyone loves to hate: not so the ’77os, who really are just about everyone’s second favourite team.

REAL GARDARESSO

Liga-TQ: Best finish - 3rd; season 1 (o123)
State Championships: Antivador State Champions 16 times; most recent season 123
Copa Tequila: Winners - once; season 66

Stadium: Palacios de Cristal, GardaressoCapacity: 81,800
Nicknames: Los Vidrieros - The Glaziers

Current Manager: Ferrando Clemente
Team Captain: Raimi Dokunanga (ST)
Star Player: Rüí Lütáò (FFD) (AMC)
Young Prospect: Manuel Cañero (ST)

Alright, lets talk glamour now - Real Gardaresso practically invented the concept. The oldest team in Antivador, they are the biggest and best supported club on the islands, and play at the largest domestic stadium in Tequilo. The Crystal Palace, Real’s fortress so named for the large amount of fancy glass used in renovating the stadium which effectively hides a multitude of sins underneath - the old stadium was a vast and shambolic edifice which really hasn’t been renovated so much as camouflaged. Still, it looks great, sounds great, and vibrates on a terrifying frequency if half the ground are jumping up and down - something Real’s ultras enjoy doing to frighten the bejesu out of visiting supporters. Nicknamed the Glaziers after their ground, Real probably have not won as many titles as they might have expected, since the state championship is one of the most competitive. And yet this grand old team is still one of the most famous across the whole of the Wide Enness Ocean.

Liga-TQ: Best finish - 14th; season 1 (o123)

Stadium: Estadio Grajo Resplendiente (El Nido Cuervo, The Crow's Nest), La Conon, MarancoCapacity: 62,800
Nicknames: Los Cuervos, Las Platasnegras
Colours: Black & silver striped shirts with light blue trim, white shorts, black socks

Legend: Diego Cuello-Azul

Current Manager: Ilhicadira
Team Captain: Jeremías Carballal (AMC)
Star Player: Taca (ST)
Young Prospect: Kâásîmîró (FFD) (ST)

The black-and-silvers have a reputation in Tequilo for style, for attacking prowess and for shaking up the elite, harking from the smaller regional city of La Conon (population 350,000) where they have fanatical following and no serious competitor locally, making them one of the biggest supported ‘local’ clubs, as they like to style themselves. It doesn’t stop them from shopping widely for players, and they have often carried a number of foreign stars within their team. Presently they have a much more homegrown feel but do contain two youngsters from abroad that they consider wonderkids in the making - midfielder Laurent Lapix from Reçesión (RCN) and forward Kâásîmîró Êrsáreng of Encuentrodillo (FFD): both real hot prospects. Resplendiente’s main rivals are Motozintla from the state capital Tirinto and Oriente from Aticenta, the three of them traditionally fighting it out for the top spot in the state championships.

Current Manager: Ramiro Peredo
Team Captain: Hugo Reza (DC)
Star Player: Narciso Cora (ST)
Young Prospect: Roibén Caldeira (ST)

In the state capital of Cuara (pop. 1.3m for the whole metropolitan district), two teams vie for supremacy of the city, and of the state championships - one is the upstart, brash, new money noisy neighbour Sporting Club of Tequilo, commonly Tequiloa, whilst the other is pitxi royalty - old school, old money, old manners: SC Pedregal, the oldest club in Guastenango and arguably the first pitxi club in all Tequilo. They are a popular club throughout the country for their heritage, although they are also the club many love to hate, considered like all aristocratic types to be a bit arrogant and a bit fancy. Their fame is uncontested though, and throughout the Wide Enness Ocean they are well known - not just for some ancient ideal of the good old days, and of how the game used to be played; they are equally famous for being pretty damned successful too - vying with Acacoyagua for most titles and some considerable distance ahead of the chasing pack where Equipo Caimán are the best of the rest.

Wire Directorio Antivador

Postby Tequilo » Wed Jul 29, 2020 11:55 am

The state of Antivador is in fact not part of the Tequiloan mainland but a large separate island and a series of archipelagos within the Golfo de Tequílo, and in mentality as well as geography has always considered itself apart from the rest of the country - an attitude which is perceived across the rest of the country as rather arrogant and snobbish. While the Puezaños are a very independently-minded lot and quite different from the rest of the union, willing and patriotic members of the alliance, deeply involved in the foundation and unification of the country and to be found active in all forms of national life, the Antivadorio prefer not to dirty their hands in the affairs of the nation. It is remarkable that they willingly joined the union in the first place - and remain - when they consider themselves a country apart, and in all ways superior to ‘the rest’. And yet at the heart of it they know their economy is stronger for the union and tolerate their membership because of it. A populous main island with several large cities including the capital Lipa, it certainly is distinct, with a more cosmopolitan feel to it and the most attractive part of the nation for visitors. The island has a minority Índigo tribe, the Uiaiey, who were largely an early subsistence bartering tribe that did not establish city states and empire like the Ixta, Huayna and Xico peoples, and therefore when the Costelloan settlements occurred they integrated more quickly and are today less populous.

Based in the popular seaside tourist resort of Toyen, Móvi recall a less glamorous time when the city was founded on the whaling industry and was far from anywhere an innocent tourist might want to travel to. But Toyen has been on the up over the last century as Tequilo turned away from whale-hunting, and with better times came a fancy football club - Juventoyan have fallen a little behind their rivals Atlás, Real and Florentino in a competitive state league, but they have history... and have been a 10-Nacional team at different times in their history. Still a big club with wide support and a glamourous front, it was a humble beginning as an athletics club for the fisheries and factories of Toyan, before growing into the big commercial operation it is today. One of several clubs hoping to capitalise on the new found enthusiasm for Liga-TQ, they will need to catch their Antivadorian rivals and grab a state title or three before they can return to the big time of the big ten.

The industrial heartland of Tequilo, Chazapa State doesn’t have the prairies of Maranco, the deserts of Ocotapa, or the mountains of Guastenango; but what it does have is infrastructure, tech, entrepreneurs, money and big grimy cities. The motto for the state is ‘We Build It In Chazapa’ and that is undeniably true. Alcaraiso, Sezalco, Senzapa… these are all huge manufacturing conurbations, sprawling cities that support a huge amount of football clubs - although most of the sporting money goes into the first love of the state - Lucho Grasiento, or greasy wrestling, with football following on behind. The workmanlike nature of the state is reflected in the clubs - unglamorous, unloved outside their own supporter base, mostly ignored outside Chazapa state itself. But one city stands apart - Ixta-Comitán, heart of the Ixta people’s historic empire - and so does its football team: the mighty Pitxi-Pitxi 77. But while the 77o dominate state football, there are plenty of other decent sides to follow...

Hailing from the same city as Pitxi-Pitxi 77, the Jags stand in the shadow of the nation's most successful club, and you might think they'd struggle to get noticed. On the contrary, the 77o's cross-town rivals have been hugely successful in their own right, have often competed on level terms with the big guns, and will remind everyone that they have won more Copas than them. The rivalry is largely a friendly one, often with families split down the middle in their loyalties, and the Jags fans have not been short of their own glory days. Plus they go down in history as the only team to fork out actual cash for the Worst Player of All Time - Haizinto. They claim it was an ID mix-up, but that doesn't detract from paying ¢40 for the defender (just under half an NS dollar) and even letting him have one game in the seniors. That aside, the popular team from Ixta-Comitán are always a good bet for entertainment.

The predominantly highland cloud forest region of Guastenango State is in many ways the most exotic and diverse of the six regions of Tequilo, a region famous for adventuring opportunities and home to coffee, caapi and mapachi production - three of the great brain stimulants of the country. Not that you would go there for such narcotic motivations, nonono. The state is the number one area for fruit cultivation and there is plenty of llama, alpaca, mountain goat and Nango sheep farming for the agriculturists to explore. The home of the Huayna people, together with it’s psychoactive domestic products and spectacular landscapes, makes Guastenango a central source of mysticism & ritual, and a devoted production house of the mythologies in Confusiónismo. The smallest state by population, it’s mountain cities of Cuara, Raití and Huayna-Comitán have still managed to produce some fine pitxi clubs, two of which are firmly in the 10-Nacional and compete in the Cálculo Gigantico, or reckoning, as we call our derby rivalries: SC Pedregal and Acocoyagua.

El Tano haved carved themselves something of a reputation as a cup team, winning the Copa Tequilo on four occasions, the second highest after mighty CFFA, and this has brought their dedicated following some considerable joy down the years as one of the few teams that enter the Copa who are considered having a change of winning it - so difficult is the competition, even Pitxi-Pitxi 77 are not given much hope at the outset. In state football the achievements of the club have been modest down the years, but with six titles they are not without some history, including winning back-to-back titles in seasons 82 and 83. The small mountain city of El Quetan, a popular tourist destination and transit point for cloud forest adventures, hosts two decently-sized clubs in El Tano and cross-town rivals SC Bozoa; the derby or cálculo, 'The Big Farce', is a hotly contested affair between two teams who treasure local bragging rights - something that more often than not has been the pleasure of El Tano's supporters.

Young Prospect: Davide Pasos, ST

One of the grand old clubs of Tequilo, Sporting Club Raití can certainly name themselves in a small group of the three oldest clubs in existence along with SC Pedregal and Pitxi-Pitxi 77*; but unlike those two, have not come so close to legendary status in terms of silverware. Certainly 9 state titles is none too shabby, but this is a huge team that for a couple of generations now has woefully underperformed. With support throughout the state and beyond, it is a genuinely big club that has never had a sniff at the 'Big Ten' of the 10-Nacional, and most neutral observers would call that a travesty. They have always had great players on the books including the legend that is Afonso Tapia; manager and former player Roibén Ravelo, and current national team winger Tutayan - but have so little to show for it. Fans don't seem to mind - attendances at the spectacular Estadio San Raí are always at capacity, and the atmosphere electric come rain or shine. And in recent years, there has not been a lot of shine. The fans have certainly earned their nickname: Los Esperanzados - The Hopefuls.

* The actual oldest of the three is not entirely agreed upon, with historians divided between SC Pedregal and 'La Abuela' - SC Raití.

The largest of the six former countries that now make up the vast nation of Tequilo, Maranco State is a blend of major conurbations such as the city of Tirinto (pop. 6.6 million) and Matiguá (4.3 million), the vast open reaches of the Great Prairie which was the traditional plains-home of the Xico people, centred on the ancient city-state and modern tourist attraction of Xico-Comitán, and the high Sierra Muralla chain with it’s famous mountain cities of La Milega and La Conon. The vast state has no shortage of famous pitxi teams, perhaps none more so than Motozintla from the capital; but Moto come up short after a barren spell in the last decade or so and surprisingly to some, they don’t make the Big 10 in Tequilo - that honour belongs to to team from La Conon in the mountains; in a competitive state championship, it is Resplendiente who are the sole 10-Nacional representative from Maranco State, with Moto trailing behind; in a competitive field Xicoa, Oriente, Alianza Torinto and Continente Turan all have titles into double figures.

At Motozintla, so it is said, they never stop going on about how big they are. And what they are going to do next to prove they are the greatest. To be fair, they are big. Very big. No-one outside of Moto likes to admit it, but they rival CFFA and Pitxi-Pitxi 77 for support across the country. They have spent much of their history inside the 10-Nacional, the country's best ten clubs by state championships, but their best days are a long way behind them. Hence all the talk about what they are going to do next. With the resources they have, the backing they can rely on, the time will surely come when Motozintla are great again - but many both inside and outside of the supporter base also hint darkly at the Curse of Moto - that the Wights of Pitxi (mythical demons of Confusionism) are against them for rumoured transgressions that offended the spirits. It's all tosh of course, but makes for great content. And there definitely is something wrong when a club the size of Moto just can't win anything any more.

The former nation of Ocotapa, now the home state of the national capital Tapalupé (population 13.3 million), sits in the central area of modern Tequilo, neighbouring sea, mountain, desert and steppe in the vast reaches of that land that unites two continents - Pletora to the north and Plataforma to the south. The second smallest state by area is also the most crowded per capita, in no small part due to the insane scale of the two major cities - Tapalupé and Tacranza (population 8.2 million). Not surprisingly, those cities have a good share of half decent pitxi clubs and have produced two of the nation’s most successful - the rivals of the Cálculo - that is to say ‘reckoning’, or derby, in your language - known as El Térifico: Fábrica of Tapalupé and Argón of Tacranza. But they are far from alone.

The big team in Santa Clares, The Bikes attract a rabid following at The Velodrome for their state championship matches, where they have been in the shadow of Argón, Fábrica and Cooperativa throughout pitxi history. But they are not without their own successes - eleven state titles tells a story all it's own - the team that formed out of a cycle club have their day in the sun and are always competitive. Club Pelotón Santa Clares are the country's biggest and most successful competitive cycling association with widespread following nationally, and their sister club for football benefit from their profile, sharing club colours and even the 'chélin-doublon' logo; the chélin-doublon being one of the earliest styles of bicycle when it was new technology.

Wire Directorio Puezan

Postby Tequilo » Sun Aug 02, 2020 11:01 am

Though entirely enthusiastic about the union of Tequilo, cantankerously patriotic and historically one of the first proponents of a united states, the people of Puezan retain a fiercely protected identity and consider themselves both a part of, and separate to, the country Tequilo. Geographically the fertile prairie state of Puezan is sheltered by mountains across the large part of its border, sits on the north-east coast of the nation, and is the more temperate breadbasket of the nation. The fire of Puezan, so the saying goes, is the character of its people - they are considered, perhaps a little unfairly, [/perhaps not - ed.] the hotheads of the country. We prefer to think of them as passionate. A strong cultural identity is matched by a huge passion for sport as an expression of Puezaño independence; pitxi is their favourite sport and in CF-Frantxizko-A they have the (almost) undisputed jewel in the crown of domestic football. But CFFA are not the be all and end all of Puezaño Pitxi...

Young Prospect: Martzel Zabalaemaldi, ST

Hailing from the small coastal city of Urzagui, Peru have spent decades punching well above their weight to compete at the highest level, with an impressive twelve state titles probably the best of all the more 'provincial' teams in Tequilo. Never quite in the 10-Nacional big boys club, they have enjoyed giving some of them a bloody nose down the years and are never far away in the final shakeup. It says something about their modest background that their biggest rivals, in the Cálculo grandly referred to as 'The Big Fatty', are second and third tier bouncers from across town, Atléta Idal.

UNUIĜINTA

Liga-TQ: Yet to qualify
State Championships: Puezan State Champions 12 times; most recent season 122

Alternate: Green shirts with black sleeves, black shorts, green and black hooped socks
Rivals: CF Frantxizko-A (El Massívo), Peru Urzagui (El Gargántua), Demokrito (El Gran Büta)

Current Manager: Horazio Urruticoechea
Team Captain: Mirena Gortairi, DC
Star Player: Pluton Eguliz, ST
Young Prospect: Urguz Alzagaray (ASG), DC

Perhaps, in the early days, The Red Lions were an even bigger team than their cross-town rivals and one of Tequilo's superclubs, CFFA. But over time The Golds have come to dominate Puezaño football, leaving Unuiĝinta somewhat in their wake. But they remain a powerhouse of the state and are one of the best Copa teams, with four wins from four finals. Only one team has more Copas... yes, CFFA again. If they are tired of being second best, it never shows - meetings between the two, El Massívo, is one of the most crazy passionate fixtures in the pitxi season - one for the football tourists, if any are brave enough to try it.

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY: ANTIVADOR

A tightly-contested league with more glamour than all the other state championships put together, 'Liga Islas' can point to having more teams as champion than any other state league (19), as well as more teams with ten or more titles (6) and more teams in the 10-Nacional (3). The dominant six are Real Gardaresso, Atlás Ciuredor and Florentino (in the 10-Nacional) along with Juventoyan, Humberto and Atlético Lipa - all of whom could more than hold their own in the Liga-TQ Primera division, though only one will make it per season. Humberto hold the record for most consecutive titles (3), while Florentino are the state's best Copa team (3 wins).

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY: CHAZAPA

With Pitxi-Pitxi 77 so dominant as the nation's most successful state team, there sometimes seems little room for anyone else in the Chazapa State Championships history books. But of course the 77o don't get it all their own way, all of the time - Los Miñeros, Pingüinos, Cóndor Sezalco and especially city rivals Jaguar Ixtacomitán all play their part in making sure there is never a walkover in this league. Indeed, Los Miñeros equal the 77o as the only teams to have won three titles in a row in the division; while it is Jaguar who are the state's best Copa team with 4 wins, double that of the 77o. All that aside, the state's one representative in the 10-Nacional is of course the nation's biggest and best team of all time - you can't really take much away from the green-and-whites of Pitxi-Pitxi 77, they reign supreme.

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY: GUASTENANGO

The cloud forest state of Guastenango boasts two teams in the 10-Nacional and they are certainly the two dominant clubs in state football, with no-one coming close to matching them over time. Trading titles down the years, Acacoyagua and SC Pedregal are historically peerless in the mountains and forests of this mystical place; one team alone shows any sign of catching them - Equipo Caimán. Yet we must not forget there are some other sizeable clubs with plenty of glamour attached to them, notably Raití city rivals SC and Inter, and the 'upstart' team, Tequiloa. Despite the dominance of the big two here, no-one in the state has yet managed an historic three-in-a-row, the only state championship where such a feat has not been achieved. The state also boasts the nation's second most successful Copa team in El Quetan CF, who have become cup specialists down the years.

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY: MARANCO

The Maranco State Championship is historically perhaps the most competitive and hardest to win of the six states, and it's most successful team, Resplendiente, are only narrowly ahead of a whole host of very competitive teams, notably Xicoa, Alianza, Continente and Universitario, along with two of the older powerhouses of Tequiloan pitxi - Motozintla and Las Guías Oriente. Those two were, a century ago or even fifty years ago, the outright best pair in the whole country and the only two in the state to win the championship three-in-a-row. But Resplendiente lead the batch of teams that have caught and surpassed them in modern times. Los Cuervos are also tied with Oriente as the state's best Copa team and reside now at the top of the pile.

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY: OCOTAPA

Two teams sit astride the Ocotapa State Championship, and close to the pinnacle of the national game too - El Térifico rivals Fábrica Tapalupé and Argón Tacranza. It's The Factory vs. The Argonauts. The Spanners vs. The Squids. Like Acacoyagua and SC Pedregal in Guastenango State, these two certainly feel like they own the Maranco state championship between them, although Péloton & Cooperativa will have something to say about that. Fábrica perhaps hold the advantage as the state's best Copa team. After Pitxi-Pitxi 77 & CFFA, they are probably the best two sides nationally from an historical perspective. But one team holds an enviable record that neither can match: Cooperativa's four state titles in a row back in the 80s, the second and last time this was achieved anywhere in Tequilo, is beyond the big two of El Térifico.

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP HISTORY: PUEZAN

Home of the second most successful state team across all Tequilo, the Puezan State Championship has had it's fair share of glory in the form of mighty CF Frantxizko-A, commonly CFFA or The Golds, the only team who have managed to keep pace with Pitxi-Pitxi 77 of Chazapa state and the undisputed kings of Puezan. A long barren spell has allowed other big clubs to take back some glory, particularly Unuiĝinta and the Ibaeta city rivals Sporta and Urbo; but the small provincial Peru Urzagui have moved themselves into the distant second place while CFFA prevaricate. The Golds also hold the record as most successful Copa team in Tequilo, and were the first and so far one of only two clubs to win four state championships in a row.

Wire Museo de Pitxi

Postby Tequilo » Thu Aug 13, 2020 6:55 am

The principle asset of the Unión de Pitxi Tequilo - that's the FA to you and me - and headquarters is the magnificent former Palacio Aratinco, once home of despots in waiting, and now the famous museum of everything football in Tequilo. In this article we reproduce a recorded lecture by Assistant Curator of the museum Exidio Coyopa of Socrates which briefly outlines the development of this wonderful site. Here, Señor Coyopa speaks to a party of tourists from around the multiverse who are exploring the museum.

Image



MUSEO de PITXI
1, Plaza Pitxi, Camino Recto, Distrito Socrates, Tapalupé


Welcome, welcome back from the café - I hope your break was pleasant and you did not go overboard on the intoxicants, dear turistas. Do join my tour group as we proceed through the fascinating history of pitxi - that is football to you - in Tequilo, informed by the exhibitions of this wonderful museum, set in the old palace of La Familia Aratinco. Should you have any questions along the way, do not hesitate to ask, and I, Exidio Coyopa of Socrates, Assistant Curator, will be happy to help. My knowledge is encyclopaedic, to quote a review in the Stowaway City-Break Guide for Tapalupé City, and my language skills are quite something to behold, they say. So please, your rarely asked questions.

RAQ: Can you tell us a bit more about La Familia?

Okay, Señor, a pertinent question.

The Aratincos had been poor farmers of this region for a couple of centuries, and hard workers too, but they were of Antivadorio stock originally and therefore inclined to haughtiness and self-importance. The fruits of their labour were widespread estancias built over time, and gradually they became one of the wealthiest families in Ocotapa - but being of Antivadorio inclinations, preferred not to mix in fancy society of the vibrant young city of Tapalupé.

You there, young boy, with the plastic tiara and your hand in the air, what is it?

RAQ: Does this have anything at all to do with pitxi, or is this just a boring history lesson?

Well, that is very forward for a small child. And yes, it does have something to do with pitxi, since they built a magnificent house and you are now standing it, learning all about the sport. So I should say it has a lot to do with pitxi. Now I will kindly request your parents take you in hand for a bit while I finish this introduction, when you will see that it has everything to do with pitxi. Now, where was I?

I suppose the boy does have a point, the whole history is probably a lesson for a whole other thread, but in summary, by and by, the Arantincos lived on the edges of fancy society and despite being the richest of people in the old country of Ocotapa, they had deliberately isolated themselves; and as often is the case, came to resent being isolated even though it was of their own making, and wanted to prove themselves the better people. By the time of Baztan Aratinco, La Familia considered themselves far superior to just about anyone, anywhere; and Baztan, doing some early genealogical work on the family tree, asserted - probably with a dash of exaggeration and a very large helping of historical fiction - that he could trace a line back to an old monarchy of the great progenitor empire long forgotten, the royal family of Costelloa; he asserted his claim on a new crown for all the nations of the region and applied for title through various means that included bureaucratic, propaganda, administrative fraud and armed methods of acquisition.  He also tried the performative approach - act like a King and people will accept that you must be one. He built a palace - this palace - and entertained royalty from all over the multiverse in an effort to be invited into the secret sect, The Free Architects of the New Multiversal Order. But he never got the invite, and in any case it really was just a tennis club for royal relatives, and Baztan I of Ocotapa & The Índigo Nations - self-appointed - was too coarse and not related to anyone, so they wouldn’t let him in. The royalty claim eventually failed, as Baztan was laughed at in both royal circles and Ocotapa high society as a snooty pretentious farmer.

It was about this time that modernist dictatorship and totalitarianism was really catching on in other parts of the world, and Baztan’s son, Alberto, was reaching adulthood. Frustrated by the failure of his father and disillusioned by the promises of a hopeless monarchial bid, Alberto was attracted to this new model of acquisitive avarice and decided that Might Was Right; instituting his own army. I will not go into the whole bloody history of the War of The Cacti here, for fear of boring little Junior Tiara over there, but the self-appointed General Aratinco and his private army were key belligerents in one of Tequilo’s dark periods in history; and he almost won, too. Thankfully a number of idealist all-rounders including Simon Paravar, Túvilca Bamba and Uropa Tequilo Mérika managed the final victory to defeat the dictator General, and out of darkness rose modern Tequilo, a unification of six nations and the three índigo empires. The gross dictator General was captured in the mountains and, since we have children present, shall we just say he was dealt with, and that was the end of that sorry affair.

General Aratinco’s daughter Aularia Santos Aratinco, the only surviving member of the family, lived on in an increasingly dilapidated palace, as the family farming empire was sold off to pay debts to society. She became a well-loved philanthropist, devoting her time to helping the poor of the new nation of Tequilo, donating all her dwindling fortune over time into promoting health and wellbeing - this included the new trend for athletics clubs. She founded the Aratinco Poor People’s Athletic Society, and from that we still have today Santos Aratinco, a minor second tier club of Tapalupé. Aularia’s final act was to bequeath the family palace to the newly founded UPT, the pitxi authority, who have lovingly restored the palace as the Museo de Pitxi as well as, on the upper floor, its own headquarters.

And so you see, boy with the plastic tiara - it was about the pitxi! Ha!

Wire Ciudad de Pitxi

Postby Tequilo » Fri Aug 14, 2020 12:48 am

If you take the Tonorobos Rápido expressway out toward the suburb of Quezaldad, in the sprawling capital city of Tapalupé, Tequilo, you will eventually come upon the massive construction site of La Ciudad de Pitxi - The City of Football emerging from the mud and rubble of this once poor and crowded district. It is not much of an appealing site right now - but then Quezaldad never was much, and knocking most of it down has certainly been an improvement; but one day, a shining monument to the ambition of the Unión de Pitxi Tequilo - that’s the FA to you and me - will stand proud on this site; 2.5 square kilometres of prime football development location including the brand new national stadium.

CIUDAD de PITXI
Distrito Quezaldad, Tapalupé



SEÑOR LEPE’S PITXI PLAN

“It’s quite simple really,” says Señor Lepe, President of the UPT, “we just have to win everthing and dominate everyone.” Well, that’s easy for him to say - it was his philosophy as a player and he did find that quite simple really: in Tequilo, he won everything, beat everyone. But Lepe is talking bigger now. He is talking about The Multiverse. At club level, at international level. And especially, at player level. He wants the best of everything, he’s willing to spend to get it, and he has the backers. To some, maybe, it’s a pact with the devil, or devils: The Oroboros Cooperative, a seemingly limitless resource - the investment arm based in Taxhavn, financiers of the former rise to footballing power of Tamarindia, of Wight, of Bonesea (albeit briefly, and with… uncomfortable… endings: “don’t worry about that,” says Lepe, “we will be different”); and with Satélite Boldsport, some foreign media company with preposterously deep pockets and connections to the underworld. Well, Wight, again. Same same. But more about the complex financial deals Señor Lepe has signed off on another time - with all that cash in their pockets, what are the UPT planning - apart from world domination?

The masterplan is already visibly underway and undeniably promising: unifying the six states of Tequilo to produce a national team for the World Cup and other tournaments? Check. And with a Baptism of Fire semi-final, a top half group finish in WC qualifying, reaching the knockout rounds of their debut Cup of Harmony - initial results are promising. Next - build a commercialised national league for the country that can generate serious revenue as well as getting recognition for Tequiloan club teams on the wider stage? Check. Liga-TQ enters it’s second season already a success in the eyes of the Tequiloa, and what’s more, clubs have not generally made a complete ass of themselves in IFCF and IFF international club competitions this season. In fact, one or two have done remarkably well. Next - concentrate on the kids? Check. Liga-J provided excellent competition for the under-19s, and let’s not forget a very acceptable bronze medal finish in the Under-18 World Championship. The kids are alright. Add in a development under-21 team for the Mike Sarzo Memorial Trophy (oh dear) and under-23 for the Independent Association Championships (gulp), with developmental coaching as part of the package, and you have age pathways for all the best players. Next - start bidding for international hosting duties to further the profile of the domestic game? Check. Voting? Well, let’s not get into that now, it’s mere detail…

All you need now is a unified coaching philosophy taught at a bespoke centre to further advance the quality of football in Tequilo, a place to play and learn, and a national stadium to be proud of. And that is where the City of Football in Quezaldad suburb, Tapalupé comes in. Forty pitches; two junior stadiums; the 100,000-seater national stadium; full training facilities; hotels and admin centres; a host of innovations to assist in the innovation of the game and the grand plan to rule the world. Today it may be a very large hole in the ground. Tomorrow it’s the future… said Señor Lepe at the end of our interview. But who is paying for all this? And what was here before Pitxi? Should we care?

CASH TO BURN

It’s an old saying in Tequilo - understand the sequence of the resplendent jackdaw in flight, and you will come to anticipate the order of movements that divine the hiding place of the secret and elusive rattleworm. Often that is abbreviated to the more pragmatic but less whimsical ‘follow the money’.

Who is funding Señor Lepe’s grand scheme to dominate world football, and why? Answer the first part of that question, and you can pretty quickly surmise the latter. It may surprise, and it may come to worry you, when you know. But you need to know, if you are a good honest Tequiloan with a healthy distrust of the mischievous spirits of Confusiónism. Uncanny business is afoot. At first glance, you may not think so. You’ll be saying, it’s this huge broadcast TV deal, right? Yes. It is partly that - Satélite Boldsport, a foreign media company with preposterously deep pockets, has paid enough money down to invest heavily in the modern commercial enterprise of Liga-TQ, and the rest will follow off the back of that. But wait, Satélite who? Isn’t that name familiar? Boldsport? And no, it’s not another Havynwilde duplication service. Boldsport is the money that funded Bonesea’s rise to (almost) the top of world football. Ok, so that’s no big deal for a big deal is it? Media corporation funds football league?

Image


Well - then there is the contract to build the City of Football. That went to Heavy Products, and they are based in Taxhavn. Which used to be in Rushmore, a hundred years ago, until the nation was forcibly exiled during one of those dubious Maxtopian Z-Day apocalyptic crashes. That happened about the same time as the poor residents of The Septen Islands were forcibly removed from Ao during the same multiversal crisis. And Banque Sept-Nat, which is the principal financial partner in the construction, was of course founded as the national bank of the Septen Islands, with it’s central reserve held in Taxhavn. Then there was a third forced ethnic cleansing during the Z-Day land grab: the Wightlings, forced from Ao along with their Septen neighbours and sent to the Rejected Realms. It was the Wightlings who rose to power in world football funded by their mysterious Oroboros Cooperative, a syndicate of murky finances that had previously been linked to both the rise and fall of our near neighbours and good friends in Tamarindia - a nation that also started to look like it might become a power until… The Fall. Sponsored, allegedly, by the Oroboros Cooperative. And when Wight fell, and Taxhavn, and Bonesea, like dominoes - the OC was there, and remains there.

The Oroboros Cooperative - a shadowy Wightling syndicate funding power surges, collapses and restorations since way back when, and - get this - the majority stakeholders in a wide range of syndicates including, amongst others, Boldsport, Heavy Products, Banque Sept-Nat, and Grupo Taxhavn. At the bottom of all this cash to burn, is a dark, dangerous wight with a match and a can of chlorine trifluoride, The Oroboros Cooperative. What are they up to? Who can understand the Wightling Agenda? But whatever it is, nations that take the Oroboros doubloon tend not to last long enough to find out. Will Tequilo be next to suffer a Catastrophic Termination Event?

THE MAN WITH THE PLAN

They call him Dik ten Beuenk, and he comes from Mustardy. Now I don’t know about you, but I hadn’t even heard of Mustardy until two World Cups ago - the small island nation entered for the first and only time, didn’t do very well, didn’t do atrociously badly, and disappeared from view again. A little below par, but certainly in the realm of ordinary and, frankly, easily missed. I bet most people didn’t notice at the time, and have long since forgotten the shock win in South Covello, the highlight of an otherwise dull qualifying campaign. Hardly the stuff of dreams; not somewhere you would look for a mastermind of football. No offence, Mustardos of the world. When Tequilo announced it would send a national team to the last Baptism of Fire tournament to take it’s international bow, the announcement of Dik ten Beuenk as Team Director raised a few eyebrows, but not many. The logic was sound - he had guided a new entrant in the last cycle, picked up a shock win, a few half decent results, and had ensured a very small nation was never humiliated. It didn’t sound very ambitious to get such a man, but at the same time, it sounded unusually pragmatic for the UPT.

Skip forward three years, and Dik ten Beuenk is the mastermind behind a football revolution. How did that happen? He is advising at every level of the game. He designed the new Liga-TQ format. He’s the brains behind the coaching progression that has placed prominent older players in coaching positions with the junior national teams. He’s co-designed a technical and tactical strategy for the national team and is mastermind of the City of Football project, a vast development centre to make Tequilo a dominant force in football over an undisclosed period. This might sound fanciful and maybe it is, but they have not had a bad start. Dik ten Beuenk, it seems, might just be a genius. But a genius from… Mustardy? A small island of hardly any inhabitants, not even enough to fill up the small Socrates district of our own capital here in Tapalupé. Can that be right?

We took a look back at the archives. There is almost nothing on the man - except… one little thing. One tiny throwaway mention in an obscure forum post. A problem with Mustardy passports, just a small incident. They are, apparently, nigh impossible for the international community to verify, and there is often a hint - or worry - of fakery. Mustardy passports might not be what they seem, and Mustardy passport holders may not be who they say they are. So, who exactly is Dik ten Beuenk? Certainly, we cannot argue that he knows his pitxi. He has a background in business too, according to his sketchy bio on the Locked Off professional networking site, where it states his work with the Barque syndicate to a senior level before switching to football… that would be Barque, of Tamarindian origin, who transferred operations to Bonesea after The Fall. He is quite old too - old enough now to have been about the right age to switch from maritime work to football at the time when Bonesea were making waves in the world - led by a genius strategist who had switched from being a sailor to a football coach. We propose that he’s not from Mustardy at all. We propose that was a sham, a cover-up, a diversion: he’s from Bonesea. And there is only one genius football strategist from Bonesea who had once been a sailor, masterminded the rise of the nation to the top of world football, and conceived of ‘World Cup Island’ - an island of stadia, training facilities, rehabilitation, accommodation; an integrated football-based centre not unlike his masterplan for the City of Football. Dik ten Beuenk, we suggest, is he.

Pythagoras Jones, the brains behind Bonesea.

THE DISLOCATED

The old district of Quetzaldad in Tapalupé had its attractions and a certain charm - kilometres of narrow alleyways and shutts full of traders of dubious wares, intoxicants, and life-affirming (or exterminating) adventures; ‘lively’ markets; rambunctious mariachi and latin shanties; pickpockets, shiners, rum cullies, tricksters, brazen trollops, bold deceivers and sharps; all types of the rodent genus including but not limited to sewer rats, street rats, desert rats, cactus rats, tile rats, strutting rats, dog rats and the famously aggressive alley rats; overcoat confectioners and tobacconists; shamans and brujas and even a few wights-in-residence; all manner of wild tapas, grills and barbecues; beer sloshing everywhere; bent coppers, runaway soldiers and drunk sailors; every girl and/or guy of your dreams shoulder to shoulder with those of your nightmares; shrunken heads and goatballs; wisdom, knowledge, experience, joy, delight, and terror; gold trinkets that cost nowt but spare change and pig nickel chips that would’ve cost you everything… it wasn’t for the faint of heart.

All that is gone now - or going; buried under a thousand tons of rubble. Everything came down.

But where has everyone gone, and what do they think about their former den of a thousand iniquities, cemented now in the foundations of a sporting dream and shiny architectural delights? Rubèn Curto grew up in Quetzaldad’s narrow and lively alleyways, the son of a tanner or hidemonger. We spoke to him about his life in the district, and the time that came for him to be relocated. He went to school in the overcrowded rooms of the institution buildings, and left when he was eleven to collect faeces for the tannery - “five chèlins for a handful” - and under his father’s watchful eye, he refused to join the local gang or cuadrilla, The Many Hands; he spent his youth kicking a can down the alleys or reading second-hand books he bought with his shitmoney or which he stole from outside old bookshops. Later he earned a living selling overpriced trinkets to tourists and lost people - well, mostly lost people - and discovered he had an eye for antiques. His work strayed into valuations for thieves looking to fence stolen goods, he worked the occasional auction and got a stall at one of the famous character night markets. Sometimes he boosted his income as a taxi driver, or rarely, as a tour guide. He settled down with his childhood sweetheart Ginebra Pintà; they were making plans to have a family of their own, right there in the heart of Quetzaldad, although they reserved their most lavish dreams for a win on La Lotería and a fancy beach-house in Antivador. Looking back, Rùben is unequivocal about his life in ‘Queto’ as the locals call it:

“What a shitswamp,” he says, reminiscing. And then one day, the order came from the city planners. Queto was to be razed. Rùben was being moved to Chanco Condor, a village sixty kilometres away. “I mean, this place is no paradise, but Queto was the devil’s own septic tank. Thank the patron wights they are burying it.”

WHAT LIES BENEATH

Heavy excavator & crane operator Miguel Costello - known by his workmates as Tío (Uncle) Mík - has seen it all in his time. Well into his 80s, he’s still considered the best in the business and is being paid a handsome fee to work on the City of Football site, pulling down old Quezaldad and putting up a spanking new coaching and development centre for the national teams as well as the much-anticipated national stadium. Tío Mík is also a passionate detectorist and amateur archeologist, and he sees his work using cranes and diggers as an extension of that passion - a continuous treasure hunt. If there is one thing Tío loves almost as much as treasure hunting with his industrial excavator, it’s talking about what he’s found in his day. The man is a storyteller supreme, of the confusionist tradition much loved in Tequilo. We caught up with him at a cantina on the edge of Quezaldad, and it didn’t take many bottles of wightbeer to get him talking about what he’s seen and found on his latest job.

“General Chukwumeka? The Cannibal Mobster?! What a load of old tripe!’ he says, laughing off one of the more gruesome rumours coming out of the rubble of Quezaldad; “If you ask me, he’s still running the Zenegalese mafia in Valanora. Them pointy-ears is easy pickings. No, he’s not buried under Quetzaldad - although we’ve dug up a fair few concrete coffins.”

What’s that now?

“Round here,” elaborates Tío, “it’s The Many Hands Gang who ran the old town. They didn’t eat their enemies like The General does, but they sure weren’t averse to a concrete burial, when it suited them.” Tío Mík goes on to explain, rather ghoulishly, that he’s found heads severed from their bodies and bodies estranged from their heads, hands without owners and corpses without hands, all stashed within concrete foundations for buildings he’s pulled down. “The foundations of buildings built without planning or permission in the heart of old Quezaldad are the cemeteries of the honoured friends and sworn enemies of The Many Hands. If they liked you, you got buried with full honours underneath a children’s hospital. If they didn’t like you, you were probably still alive when they poured the base of an illegal apartment block into a hole they had kicked you into.”

But what of buried gold and jewels, the rumours of pirate hoards and national treasures?

“Come on,” says Tío, a pragmatist at heart, “this was Quezaldad. Even the fillings in our teeth were pig nickel: treasure! Pah! The closest any of us ever came to treasure was fresh bread without weevils, and no-one was burying fresh food in ‘Quezo’. For sure there were pirates - poor ones - but if Isla Tesoro tells us anything, it’s that they can’t leave their hard-won gains alone for five minutes on a deserted island… what chance it would last the night buried under half a million chancers and rum cullies? No, there was no treasure here, let me tell you. Just a lot of bones and restless spirits.”

Winning Sequence: 5 games, BoF-72
Losing Sequence: 3 games, WC-85Q


Though the Allied States of Tequilo have been unified some two centuries, football in the country was a little slower to join hands - about two centuries slower. The national team is something of a new phenomenon and as such it is a little early to be speaking of heroes and villains and legends and infamy. Beginning with an unbeaten debut in the Baptism of Fire 72 tournament, for World Cup cycle 85, under the guidance of coach Mauricio Nores and technical director Dik ten Beuenk, Los Pitxileros (transl. 'The Footballers') or the Agave-Blues took to international football like ducks out of water - that is to say, with a lot of noise and posturing, and a bit of waddling along. But mostly, it has been a fascinating ride, playing surprisingly good quality attacking football under both Nores and his successor Isaac Martí. Under ten Beuenk and coaches Nores and Martí, the Agave-Blues impressed with a BoF third-placed bronze medal, only being eliminated in the semi-final through a penalty shoot-out. They then produced a good showing in World Cup qualifying to finish fourth of 13 in the group, and reachied the knockout stages of the Cup of Harmony again going unbeaten in the group. During this gruelling cycle of 40 matches, the team twice went 11 games unbeaten, proving themselves a tough proposition even for one or two top nations that came up against them early - like Ko-oren and The Holy Empire, with Tequilo taking four points from the away games to surprise themselves as much as anyone else.

TAPALUPÉ, TEQUILO - Welcome to the precursor of a shiny new sports wire that will soon hit the forums once all the nice formatting is polished up and the art department at the Unión Pitxi de Tequilo - that's the sweet FA to you and me - have completed all the graphic inserts. In the meantime, forming part of the official entry form of Tequiloan clubs into the third IFCF series, allow us to give you a brief run down on the very first season of the all-new national league, Liga-TQ, which for the first time in over 120 years of football in Tequilo, provides a step beyond the individual state championships in an effort to determine a national champion for the country, and to easily nominate, on merit, entrants to the Champions League, Challenger's Cup, Liga-B Trophy, Cup Winners Cup and the FFI tournaments.

A quick note on the inaugural Liga-TQ. Naturally, nothing is simple in Tequilo. A modern unified nation comprising six former sovereign states and three indigene kingdoms, each with a proud history and unique identity, much of life remains connected to the culture and infrastructure of those individual states - and the same is true of pitxi - the Tequiloan word for football. After 120+ years of state championships, in which each state declared it's own winner, the clubs, fans and authorities are far too invested in state football to dismantle it. A unification league has never been tried before, and in order to preserve both the integrity and the status of the six championships, Liga-TQ must sit as an extension to, rather than a replacement for, the state championships. Thus, at the end of the State Championships, teams qualify on merit for the 'closura' - the Liga-TQ.

Liga-TQ itself divides into three top flight sections, each one made up of six teams - the Primera for the six state champions; the Proxima for the six state runners-up, and the Piqueno for the six third-placed teams of the state championships. Each division of six plays a round robin of ten games within their group, to decide a final table of 18. The winner of the Primera will thus be declared the national champion, while second, third and fourth in this division will be awarded births in the IFCF Challenger's Cup.

In order to confirm places for the Liga-B Trophy, the winners of each state second tier - the 2-Sección - will also compete in an end of season competition, the Liga-TQ2 Eliminatorio, to decide the second tier national winner and the three births for the Trophy.

Got it? Then let's get on with it.

Watch out for the new Liga-TQ Wire, coming soon, for a complete and preposterously detailed run-down on how the state championships played out. For now, under spoiler for those who don't have the time, are the top 5 finishers in each of the state championships.

The big news here is the return, at last, of the '77os to the top, winning a record-breaking 22nd State Championship in Chazapa after an eleven-year drought. Meanwhile the so-called 'big ten' of domestic pitxi - the ten clubs with the most state championships across the country - have not fared so well with only Real Gardaresso in Antivador winning a shot at the national title; Fábrica Tapalupé didn't even make the top five, let alone the Liga-TQ in what was a disastrous season for them, finishing sixth in Ocotapa state. Meanwhile Motozintla's campaign to 'Make Moto Great Again' failed for another season as they end up fourth in Maranco.

On to the second tier, 2-Sección, where each state operates a 2-up/2-down promotion system which includes a play-off for the second spot between 2nd to 5th placed teams. This season, each 2-Sección winner also qualifies for the Liga-TQ2 Eliminatorio, to run alongside the top flight version with a mini-league of six teams. This will then produce the three qualifiers for the IFCF Liga-B Trophy.

Telmo-Léao from the Puezaño city of Telmo sweep all before them in a surprising season, finishing the state championship well ahead of city rivals Batasumo, themselves smarting from having been relegated to the second tier for the first time in their history and hoping, nay, expecting to bounce back at the first time of asking. They finished 10th of 20. Meanwhile upstarts Léao were newly formed of the controversial merger of Telégrafo and Atléta Léao, in many eyes should not have even had a place in the second tier and were favourites for instant relegation to 3-Sección. Goes to show you never can tell.

Image

And so on to the main attraction, the inaugural season of Liga-TQ and a perhaps surprising line-up for the first season, with only two of the Big Ten reaching the Primera division in Pitxi-Pitxi 77 and Real Gardaresso. One of the '10-Nacional' made the Proxima - SC Pedregal - but of course are already eliminated from any hope of becoming the first national champion. It is the third section where we can find most of the big fish, with five of the six competing for places 13-18 in the national standings coming from the Big Ten; this feels like the division most fans would like to see deciding the national champion, but in each case with these five teams, they really need to pull their socks up if they want to wear the crown.

It seems fitting in the end that the mighty '77os, on breaking the record for most state championship titles with their 22nd win, should become the first national champion, and few would dispute it. With deadly rivals CF Frantxizko-A, 21-times state champion, watching on from the depths of the Pequena, it was their state compatriots Peru Urzagui who came closest to preventing the inevitable, coming into the final round of ties with a good chance of stealing the title from Pitxi-Pitxi's grasp, but a disastrous home defeat to Equipo Caimán left them trailing in second place. The Green-and-Whites celebrated in style at Estadio 77o, Ixta-Comitán, beating surprise Maranco state champions Xicoa in the all-Índigo derby, or 'Cálculo' as they consider them here - a reckoning. 'El Spectacúlotl' - the match up of the main representative teams of the Ixta and Xico peoples - ended with the '77os celebrating their elevation to first national champion of Tequilo.

Elsewhere, Tequilo's glamour club Real Gardaresso sealed their place in the Challenger's Cup along with Ocotapa State's dominant team of the times, Pelotón, hailing from the city of Santa Clares. CFF - The Golds - did at least win the battle of the the big teams in the Pequeno on goal difference from Resplendiente, while in the Proxima, Continente were the only team unbeaten in Liga-TQ to take the highest 7th place on offer.

Not content with a new national league and a pathway to the international club competitions of the IFCF, as well as a new national team competing in the World Cup for the first time, the UPT also organised the first edition of a national youth league, Liga-J. In the initial set-up, the academies of the 10-Nacional big clubs were invited to compete, along with three state champions from season 122 who sit outside the Big Ten - Serpentina, Xicoa and Unuiĝinta. With an unbalanced 13 teams, one more team was invited to complete the first Liga-J division, based on the size and reputation of academies, and the place was awarded to Motozintla. Thus in the first season, a fourteen-team Under-20 Academies national league saw a 26-game schedule to decide the youth champion. The UPT includes plans to expand to thirty academy teams in total, competing in three tiers of 10. In the first expansion for the following season, season 124, the four bottom teams of this year's Liga-J will be relegated to the second tier, where they will be joined by a further ten teams, with a final tier and an additional six teams being added in season 125.

And without further ado, the final standings in the inaugural Liga-J are as follows:

The academy team at Argón, under young coach Poncio Desclot, are crowned first champions of Liga-J, eventually winning through against principle challengers CF Frantxizko-A and eternal rivals Fábrica. At the wrong end of the table, Pitxi-Pitxi's history-making season as the first annointed national champion is somewhat blemished by the relegation of their youth team to next season's second tier, along with 'the best academy in Tequilo' - by their own estimation - at Motozintla. The campaign to 'Make Moto Great Again' really isn't looking too clever at present...

The Copa Tequilo enters it's 123rd season, possibly the oldest competition in The Wide Enness Ocean unless you account for time like the Pointy Ears and assume there have been 408 centuries passing in the last decade - but since we don't do that here, we'll take it the Copa is at least very old, by Yuman standards. And it is extremely difficult to win - with over 300 teams taking part, no one team has been truly dominant. The might CF Frantxizko-A, The Golds, have won the most titles - a meagre six in almost a century and a quarter of competition. Can they compensate for a poor Liga-TQ finish of 13th with another Copa? It's unlikely - but let's take a look...

Six rounds including a preliminary will have done for many of the 2- 3- and 4-Sección clubs hoping for a bit of glory as we get down to the nitty gritty of the latter rounds, which officially begins with the 32-club sixth round. Already fallen by the wayside are the Really Big Two - CFF, The Golds, knocked out in the fifth against another of the big-10, Atlás; while Pixti-Pitxi 77, on their way to the first ever national title, also drop in the fifth following a home shoot-out defeat to top flight and state rivals Chazapañol from the state capital Alcaraiso. It's been a poor Copa so far for the 10-Nacional; Real Gardaresso join fellow Antivadorios Atlás in the next round, while Florentino, Argón Tacranza, Resplendiente, Acacoyagua and Fábrika Tapalupé all fall in the fourth round, the entry point for the top flight teams across all states.

Rebelión Hernandados 3–2 Cóndor Sezalco


Atlás Ciuredor and Real Gardaresso, the last of the Big Ten, both go out at the sixth round stage in a total wipeout for the 10-Nacional, but in one of the toughest cup competitions in the Wide Enness Ocean, that is nothing uncommon and makes this competition also one of the most loved. Only one non-top flight team however makes it to the quarterfinals, Telmo-Léao, also going strong in 2-Sección of the Puezan state championship, finally falling to Cooperativa.

Semi-Finals

Cooperativa 3–4 El Quetan CF
SC Raití 1–1 Rebelión Hernandados

El Quetan CF 5–2 Cooperativa (Agg. 9-5)
Rebelión Hernandados 0–2 SC Raití (Agg. 1-3)


So it is an all-Guastenango final as SC Raití overcome the odds to beat Rebelión, whilst El Quetan might hope for an impressive fourth cup triumph after eliminating the favourites at this stage, Cooperativa, in a fairly ding-dong attacking battle. SC have only won the cup on one occasion and, like El Quetan, are coming to the end of a drab season in the state championship, where both will finish in mid-table; this final is not one to whet the appetites of the wider world, but nonetheless, 'de Oro' - the final of the Copa Tequilo - is a great occasion anticipated throughout the country and great pride is attached to a cup triumph: it has up until now of course been the only competition which pits all sides across the country against one another. No-one ever pretended it was the national title - well, apart from that one time, of course - but even so, it has always been the pinnacle of pitxi achievement. Great excitement follows - but will the game live up to expectations?

El Tano Triumph At The Cuahtémoc
SC Raití 1-2 El Quetan CF

Qurichulpi Pinchi-Caipa took control of the Copa Tequilo finale to hand-deliver an impressive fourth cup win for El Quetan CF in the all-Guastenango de Oro at the Estadio Cuahtémoc in Huayna-Comitán. Cancelling out young Davide Pazos' first half goal after a nightmare fumble by El Tano keeper Baltasar Ares, Pinchi-Caipa stepped up to pull all the strings in a masterful display of attacking midfieldery, one that surely will alert the selectors for Los Pitxileros as they prepare for life after the World Cup. Pazos, already capped by his country, becomes the youngest player to score in the cup final as SC Raití got their noses in front in the first half, in a close fought tactical battle. This was a fascinating encounter between two teams who have disappointed in the state championships this season, but both showed enough in the free-flowing final here to suggest they can do much, much better.

With SC ahead at the break, El Quetan coach Quriwayra had his team switch to a higher press in the second half, pulling off centre back Yuraq Guañuna Noboa and shifting things around, with Auquiyayasi Huanca brought on to provide more fluid advancement from defensive positions. This paid dividends early, compressing play and closing down space in which to operate - the perfect environment for the combative and tricky Pinchi-Caipa to get about people, harrass midfielders and defenders, and generally make a nuisance of himself. Very soon into the second half he hit the equaliser and from that point there seemed only one winner, although SC were still proving a menace on rare counter-attacks, with Tutayan and Pumacaja Caldeira showing a turn of pace to trouble El Quetan's fluid back five. But you could feel El Tano's hand on the cup and when Roman Troncoso picked up a loose pass from Chacón under pressure from Pinchi-Caipa, he placed a perfect curving shot into the top far corner beyond SC keeper Matias Caldas' reach - giving El Quetan a lead which would not be overcome. Tamarindian team captain Damián Hanto lifted the de Oro trophy as his team booked a place in the IFCF Cup Winners Cup.
